Where are some inexpensive, safe areas for seniors to live? They are looking for a 2 bedroom condo or small one story house with costs less than $100K. They would like to be close to shopping and library (walking distance) if possible. Any suggestions?

$ 100,000 is a big problem when you add in safe and library within walking distance. Pleasure Ridge Park might have some REO (lender owned properties that will fit your needs, but be very careful on buying REO's.

Yes, I would suggest Carrollton and Bardstown as first choices.

Tom, last time I checked the 40217 ZIP code was one of the safest in Jefferson Co and full of affordable shotgun and craftsman style houses. Anywhere along Eastern Parkway would meet MDlady's criteria, there are similar areas along Preston Highway from I-264 to Brandeis Ave

Carrollton is a dump that is in a terrible flood plain

The key phrase: "safest in Jefferson Co". We all know that Germantown is beginning to suffer a bit; however, census, you are correct to point out the qualities of 40217.

How so, Tom? How is Germantown suffering in any way? Or is that a stereotype you have? Cobolt just visited the city, and I gave her a tour, and even the gritty parts of Germantown impressed her. I guess to each your own.

Yes, to each their own, but we had two people who are either approaching retirement, or have retired. I am mid-50's and I realize that one more move is all they probably want in life. Germantown, while currently a fine place, especially for young starter families, is beginning to fray for those of us who can't afford to make a mistake in where we live. I don't and I pointed out in my reply to Census that his information is correct and that I appreciated his input.

I'm about the same age and agree with tomocox here.
